VW is now seeking a partner to supply it with over 50 billion euros (about $59 billion) worth of batteries, which will be used for new models based on the MEB platform for electric cars.

Volkswagen Brand board of management chairman Dr Herbert Diess said the company would invest in electric mobility "to make modern technology available to many people".

VW also announced it is now looking into battery technology, tackling the issue of battery range, especially as VW's fleet alone will need 150 gigawatt hours of ion batteries by 2025. The company is also looking into longer life auto batteries that could in the future offer a driving range of over 370 miles in one charge.

Volkswagen, at this week's Frankfurt motor show, has confirmed that a production version of its all-electric ID Crozz SUV concept will be revealed in 2020 alongside the emissions-free, four-door ID small auto. The front and rear of the crossover (crozzover?) have been brought closer to how they will look in the production auto, says VW, and the rest of the vehicle - which is now Hibiscus Red - looks fairly complete as well, including the interior. The I.D. CROZZ SUV gets aggressive styling elements and a proper SUV proportion along with wide bonnet, contoured wings and roof finished in gloss black exterior finish. The bonnet and the front guards are cleaner, while the LED headlights "point the way towards production", VW says. Voice interaction allows the driver to open or close the doors, although VW has not yet revealed how the voice command system will make distinctions between the owner and others. The I.D. Crozz was revealed to the public for the first time on Monday.

The automaker also claims that the concept could handle as sharply as the Golf GTI because of parts like electronically controlled dampers and a new multi-link rear suspension setup.

BMW will be showing off a few of their upcoming electric powered models at the Frankfurt Motor Show and one of the models should be the highly anticipated BMW i5. The full-charge driving range is 500km, with recharging to 80 per cent taking just 30 minutes with fast-charging. The battery is centrally integrated within the SUV to achieve proper weight distribution between the two axles.

VW's so-called I.D. model will compete with Tesla's least expensive vehicle, the new $35,000 base-price Model 3 sedan, for mass-market buyers.
